Level: Intermediate, Advanced


Ueno sensei's remarks:


In Japanese, when you buy something you like many times or when you go to a place once and like it, and then start to go there again and again, we call this 「リピートする」. And the people who 「リピートする」, we call「リピーター」.
In English, the word Repeater is probably wrong, but are you a Repeater for anything?
Tell us about your favorite places and goods.
